Diversity Outreach

Diversity OutreachDiversity is a backbone of creative, interdisciplinary science. Thus, DBBS promotes mentorship, mentorship training, scientific collaboration, and professional development opportunities for scientists of all levels and backgrounds. Our enterprising faculty and staff seek to identify and recruit talented prospective students of varied scientific viewpoints and backgrounds to the Division. We currently administer several summer programs for high school and undergraduate students to enhance the pipeline of young scientists. DBBS also supports a number of educational, cultural and enrichment programs for current students including the Association of Black Biomedical Graduate Students (ABBGS), Women in STEM @ WashU (WiSTEM), the Graduate Association of Latinx, Native American and Caribbean Students (GALNACS), the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Network (OUTgrads), the Association of Women in Science (AWIS), and Connections (Student Families to support diversity).

We welcome opportunities to visit undergraduate campuses to offer a view of graduate training in our programs. If you are interested in hosting a campus visit, please contact Andrew Richards, Director of Admissions and Recruitment, at (314) 362-7743 or dbbs-recruitment@email.wustl.edu
